Make A Wish

This one's a bit of a cheat (very similar to the sympathy card I posted a few days ago) but I was pushed for time. There's no rule that says every card has to be totally different is there?

Stamps are by Personal Impressions, card and ink both Stampin' Up.
I've thrown some Glamour Dust on too.

SU desk tidy

Made at SU class. It's a desk tidy comprising calender, pencil, post-it note holder, decorated paper clip and a little space for stashing things at the back. Very clever!

First SU class of 2011, I couldn't wait to get back into it.
We made this card to match a great little desk project, I'll show that next post.

My friend had a baby boy the other day, this was the card I sent.

The vellum quote is an old one from DCWV and I mounted it on Bazzill Bling cardstock, attaching with Bazzill brads.
White pearlescent cardstock embossed with Cuttlebug polka dots folder and the ribbon is from my stash.

I'd stamped this cardblank (using HOTP swirl stamp) intending to use it for something else, that something else was the card in the previous post.
It just didn't look right but I was determind to use it straightaway and not just throw it in a drawer.
I mounted a Kanban topper on some scraps of card and rounded the edges, job done.

One of my New Year resolutions is to try and use up some old stash (that will probably last all of two days).

The 'Adore' fabric sticker I have had for a very long time so I've just matted and layered and attached to a Woodware blank. (Originally was going to be a tent fold card but it wouldn't stand up so I had to remove the sticker etc and try again, also had stamped some red swirls but it just did not look right).

I had a little break from cardmaking and blogging over the Christmas period and thought I'd get back into it with a nice cheery simple one....

The main image is a Personal Impressions clear stamp and the sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp.
Card and ink both by Stampin' Up.
